Tookayerta (Loxton) & Pinnaroo lines to close

 
  BrentonGolding Chief Commissioner

Location: Maldon Junction
There is very little opportunity for traffic from the Pinnaroo-Ouyen line. Before the line was booked out-of-service, there were precisely two sources of traffic - gypsum from Cowangie and grain from Pinnaroo. Unless the Mildura mainline was standardised there is no reason at all to standardise the Victorian part of the branchline.

Indeed and that was the point of my original post!

why has the gypsum traffic ceased?  there was/is a large deposit out that way.

Thanks for the advice about photos of the Tookayerta line. Is the sand mine at Mindarie still prepared to use rail to ship out their product? I have heard that the company has stockpiled ready for an uplift in the market.

No - don't think the tonnages are that high at this stage.
